Seaside Terror - by Odd Doll
Stuffed with fun frights and ice cream chills, Seaside Terror is a celebration of the British horror and British holidays of the 1970s. Funny, nostalgic and visually stunning, Odd Doll use their trademark brew of puppetry, mask and specially composed music to fill the stage with nerve-shattering shocks.
"We have seen over 200 shows ranging from local ones to west end around the country. Yours was THE BEST we have ever seen! Just wonderful. Really well done. We totally loved it." - Peter Martin
Unsung - by Alice Barber
Ada Lovelace. Sophia Jex-Blake. Lilian Bader. Andrea Dunbar.
Unsung explores the untold stories of four pioneering and inspirational female figures from our past, asking why they, and hundreds like them, have been relegated to the footnotes.
They were bold. They caused riots. And it’s about time their stories were told.
